Notes

Deck was turned off between many songs, which makes for some abrupt transitions between track and some possibly inelegant tracking.

You can tell by listening to the quiet parts that there are a couple of analog generations in here.

There might be the odd other thing.

Subject: AUD Fidelity Beats The Board's
I was rather intrigued with this AUD when hearing the matrix version. The crowd AUD merges with the board in Minglewood and suddenly, you get a SBD that has less fidelity. That was really surprising. So I decided to listen to this upload. To my surprise (and I agree with mellowmymind5453 about my doubts), it's an excellent capture. With Jerry's incapacity tonight and the other couple of nights, I really didn't take this run very seriously. Well, I'm happy to say I'm wrong in my estimation of the listenability of this and the other shows. Bobby does a yeoman's job in pulling it off. And I think I'll end up adding it to my inventory. Thanks guys for the great audience version and upload.

Show-business ethics in general tend to really suck. The worst one, I think, is "the show must go on". The Dancin' jam is nowhere, goes nowhere...lame. Same with most of the jams. All in all an OK show.

Subject: Surprise!
If you had told me beforehand that an All-Bobby show would be sonically and musically worthwhile, I would've had my doubts. But surprise! Jerry's playing is incendiary throughout and Bobby's singing is spot on and you don't really miss the Garcia tunes. I'd be interested to know anyone who was at this show and how it affected their perception. I agree with general consensus that LIG is the highlight, but everything is played with intensity. Good Show!

Subject: Unique
I love this show. Very unique and great for Weir fans. As others have pointed out, the whole band compensates for Jerry's lack of vocals. The result is a super rockin' show. Jerry's guitar is on fire the whole night and the drummers are very energetic. I'm not a big fan of disco Dancin, but this jams and gets weird too. The show never lets up. Bob proves he can pull off a whole show of his own tunes. Wouldn't it be great if he'd play his own songs nowadays?

Subject: thanks flying M
i appreciate the opportunity to download this unique show. i am shocked if you recorded this show you only gave it three stars. If I recorded this show I would have counted it as a masterpiece. I would say easily this show is 4.687 stars. I would not have minded it they had played five songs and exteneded the jams for 45 mins. Bobby really put his heart into the singing and of course as said Jerry's guitar really shines.

a friend of mine attended this show and said that Jerry sat on a stool all night ( no mike,of course)and riffed his ass off.i think that his high fever coursed through his hands and fingers like lightning. I used to have a cassetts copy (aud) of this show and wore it out listening to it. Jerrys on fire. He smoked this nite.worth a listen. Member since '73.

Hey Now! I was attending SDSU that year and remember this show; Jerry didn't sing. Unreal. Thanks for the post. Went with my friend the ODJ. Saw the Kinks there as well. Right On.

Subject: Bobby's 15 seconds of Fame!
Just kidding - this is a real nice AUD of a pretty unique type performance, almost exclusively Bobby tunes. Play around with your equalizer to get the sound the way you like it and enjoy. Jerry gets to concentrate on his Guitar and Bobby (and Donna) get to shine. I know lots of Donna bashing goes on but listen to Sunrise (the best I think I've ever heard) & Passenger.

Well I am not much of a reviewer but had to put one up for this AUD!

Giving this a 5 to boost the average, it is in my mind a 4+ easy so rounding up is not a problem for me.

Subject: Ghost! (Not Jerry)
I used to work at Golden Hall. I worked with the events manager who had been there & worked this Dead show. He was the last person to leave the building that night (early AM). He said he made 1 last pass through the hall to look for anyone; He saw a guy dressed in a black suit and bowler hat standing looking at him from the top riser on the floor. He yelled at the guy, "Hey let's go! Get the hell out of here! Show's over! Everyone has got to go!" After a couple of seconds, this "guy" came zooming down the risers toward him. He then noticed that this "guy/ghost" had no legs from the knees down & floated in the air. He said the ghost zoomed right into/out of him & disappeared. It freaked him out, & he wasn't high. He never worked another Dead show. The facility is known for other ghosts, as well.

Jerry had laryngitis. The sound is good, except for the fact that the sound of Jerry's voice is not present.

Subject: Jerry's Problem
If you listen to the clip "bobby chatter, jerry's problem" that should clear it up for you.

Subject: Double Take - An all Bobby Show???
I've seen a lot of shows but I must admit I have never heard of an all Bobby evening. I've seen plenty back east where one or another was not feeling the mojo but never like this. Maybe Jerry had lost his voice.

Sorry but a 5 for being unique. Anyone who attended this show could shed light.
